Tropicalcium saidI don't like tattoos and prospective employers will probably turn you away.
I don't like them either and it's true that more and more companies have policies that ban visible tattoos. It's not discrimination either. When you agree to work for a company you have to abide by the company rules and some have very strict dress codes. You can probably work in Wal-Mart or in blue collar job, but most office type jobs are really cracking down and require you keep them covered.
A woman I worked with had her hair up one day not thinking and I reminded her about the tatts on the back of her neck and she put her hair down immediately. After a few warnings you're out the door. Guys with them on their upper arms, chest, back and legs are okay because they'll be covered. Lower arm tattoos you have to wear long sleeve shirts but some of the guys wear short sleeve shirts and a bandage over the tat.
Women with them on their legs have to wear long skirts or pants.
Anti piercing policies are in place too. Women can wear earrings, that's it. Nothing on the eyebrow, nose, lip, tongue, etc. Men can't wear any visible piercings, not even on their ears. They want you looking professional, not like some kid working in a mall store.
